Placating terrorists, meeting with dictators, compassion for murderers... but no humanity for the unborn... incredible.

Funny thins about Left Behind : Eternal Forces


A number of individuals have raised concern that this violence is often aimed at unarmed and civilian populations within a highly realistic New York City environment.
Left Behind Games defends its choices by pointing out that killing depletes the unit's Spirit points. If Spirit points are sufficiently depleted, the unit becomes "lost" and defects to the Antichrist's army.

Some Christian speakers have called the multiplayer feature, allowing gamers to play from the perspective of the Antichrist's forces, into question. Detractors have suggested this feature takes away from the stated inspirational goal of Left Behind Games by making the forces seem equally matched or encouraging violent, anti-Christian roleplay.

Re: Funny thins about Left Behind : Eternal Forces


I have read all that. The fear it that this game could make violence seem acceptable to young Christians. Last I checked, commiting a mortal sin like murder depleted ALL your spirit points, aka grace.

Interested , singing restores spirit points in the game, and not repentance . In other words , just imagine the "Jesus Camp" special forces " singing "Praise the Lord" as they blast everyone in sight . The units in the game are hilarious , and the game resembles more a Drucker management simulation , not the eternal conflict .
